Did anyone make the switch to Cosmo and what offer did you get?

    Does anyone who's stayed there know what the $ spent translates to in identity points?

    It's on their website. I want to say every 100 points = $1 of identity play or resort credit, and every $1 spent = 5 identity points.

    Update on my EDC trip:

    I was booked on a 3-night 1 BR terrace fountain view. Upon checkin at the autograph lounge I was upgraded to a wraparound terrace fountain view, which was awesome! It was a lot of space for only two people but my friend and I both loved it! Overall, did well at the bacc tables. No complaints.

    Went back this past weekend and stayed in a 1BR Terrace and did not do well at the bacc tables. What was frustrating about this trip is I lost 3800 but the computers only had me for a 1200 loss and would not comp my extra room charges for food. Like really??? How is there that big of a discrepancy?? I will probably return in the future but will always double check my ratings, win/loss in the future.

    I agree that Kevin and his group of hosts are a welcome and needed addition to Cosmo. They are quick to respond, and happy to work with you (me) to match offers from similar competing properties. I really like the place and the changes are great. The one thing I don't like is the lack of earning Identity points or tier score points from playing blackjack. I had a 6 hour session of $150/hand verified by the pit boss, but got no tier points or identity points. It seems there was some confusion about earning those, but that's how it plays out. I will do my video poker and slots at Cosmo, but cards at CET or MLife, probably since you are earning there.

    Just got back on the 29th, stayed 3 nights. Had the wraparound, $325FP, and $125FB. I had a total of $32,000 coin-in and $1,500 in comps were earned. Basically 13% hold on Buffalo slots.

    I only had 22k coin in over 2 nights which I was a little shocked how low it was considering I lost my arse both nights. Haha. I don't think I'll get muxh offers from them going forward. But had lots of fun. Also I can't log on to their online site as I'm outside the UK. They need to sort that out as I imagine the UK is an important market.

    Hey xjji- you mention you are a Bacc player... If you don't mind asking what's your average bet like? I never played at Cosmo but I would like to.... I'm a platinum at MGM and a Bacc is my game; my average is around $450 and up. With that in mind I wonder if Cosmo can do anything?

    My average bet is probably around 400 so I'm sure Kevin can set you up!

    I would definitely like to hear more on this. Is this for the cosmo? If so I am guessing that 1500 in comps is more than slot play.

    32,000 in coin only earns 216 dollars. If you are starting at 0. If you are earning 3x that's still 384 dollars.

    Unless I am missing something big.

    OK I gotta tray to crack the math on this. Not doubting anything Donovan said, it's just a question of how you break it out.

    $32,000 on slots over 3 nights. 13% sounds about right for Buffalo, close enough.

    So the theo is $4,160 (32,000 * 0.13). 35% of that is $1,456.

    That is conceivably enough to cover a Wraparound for 3 nights and $450 in FP and RFB. But really just barely, I think.

    $32,000 coin in would also earn between $128 / $256 / $384 in Identity Points, depending on tier.

    So if he's saying his upfront comps were covered by his play, or his upfront comps were covered by his play plus using his accrued Identity Points, it sounds about right.

    If he's saying he got an additional $1,500 comped over and above his upfronts, my eyes would be opened, and I'd think someone made a mistake or some info is missing.

    Covered my wraparound w/view, $325FP, and $100FB ($75 upfront/$25 backend comp). My host basically said if I switched to 1 bedroom terrace going forward, I would have way more FB to use. Had a great trip, only lost $100!

    Can you ask at the Identity desk about daily coin-in or is that something I would need to ask my host about ?

    I would say your host is the best bet for getting coin in and even more details like theoretical
